Oval filter

The Oval filter is a single segment filter with a retro end appearance. It is very versatile and can be used with all varieties of tobacco blend.

It is a simple mechanical filter capable of reducing particulate matter, e.g. tar and nicotine, and offers familiar taste and appearance.

Filter construction

Consists of high-quality crimped cellulose acetate fibres, which are bonded firmly. The material is shaped into an oval to give the filter its retro appearance. It is then enclosed in an outer plugwrap, which can be either standard or porous depending on the ventilation requirements.

The filter tip length, circumference, and pressure drop can be varied to suit taste and filtration requirements.
